Fitting two 6 volts on 16' Bambi Sport Frame

I am looking to the future of replacing my two 12v batteries with two 6v. I think the 6v volts are bigger, so I wonder if anyone with a 16' Bambi has done this and if there were problems getting them to fit on the frame. Also, are there any other considerations to be aware of .... Like the inverter/ converter recognizing the change?

Can Am put 2 Group 24's on my 2014 Sport. They fit side by side they did have to trim the side of one of the battery boxes though. I think the 6 volts are the same size only taller. Make sure you get the tall battery boxes.

Did this. Built a 2x6 platform that I bolted to the frame then bolted the battery boxes to that. For extra strength and security I added a piece of heavy chain around the whole unit and secured it with a paddle lock.

As long as you wire them correctly your inverter/converter/electrical system won't know the difference. Just bear in mind with the same converter that it might take longer to recharge them, as you will likely be increasing the available amperage/battery capacity. I've been running dual Trojan T105s for years, they "take a lickin' and keep on tickin'". Mine are wet/flooded batteries, of course AGMs are very nice (but pricey).

On internet forums, please research and separate the wheat from the chaff (including mine!)
